The first time I ever saw Dill, I thought, "Dang! That is one fine lookin' son-of-a-gun!" Tall, dark and handsome. Our first encounter was a blind date, and afterwards I felt like maybe I should play the lottery or at least buy a Scratchers card. That kind of luck is not to be had on 99% of blind dates. Fact.
The second time we went out, Dill drove us to a church function. That was the first time I'd ever really seen his profile, since I was riding in the passenger seat. At one point I looked over to sneak a peek of his handsomeness when I suddenly thought, "Holy crap, I'm dating Tom Cruise how did that happen?!"
I mean, seriously. And apparently EVERYONE agrees. Co-workers, family members, even his fellow background players from the Life of Christ Bible Videos. I often finish people's sentences when they say, "Oh wow, your husband looks just like -- "
Me: "--Tom Cruise, I know."
And then they are astonished by my Legilimency skillz.
Last night while brushing our teeth, Dill and I were talking about his uncanny resemblance to Mr. Cruise and Dill said, "You know, I probably could be his stunt double!" To which I thought, No, because Tom is really short and you are not.
It's funny, though, because prior to meeting Dill I was frequently told I looked like Nicole Kidman. You know, the stunning Australian actress who was married to Tom Cruise for forever.
I'll take it!
At the time Dill and I began dating, Tom and Nicole were already a thing of the past so I tried not to draw attention to our resemblance. Bad omen, since our celebrity doppelgängers were fated for divorce and all.
(For the record, I look nothing like Katie Holmes. In case there was any doubt.)
But if anyone was truly heartbroken about the demise of Tom and Nicole, take heart -- their marriage lives on in us!
So who do you look like? Your significant other? Don't forget -- my dad is Donny Osmond.
